Driver Services/Vets Helping Vets: Stoughton - 2016 Amount Funded: $2,000.00
The purpose of RSVP Vets Helping Vets (VHV) is to match veteran driver volunteers wherever possible with veterans and their family members (primarily spouses) in need of rides to medical and other important appointments. As veterans themselves, our drivers can relate well to their passengers. If these ride services were not available, many Stoughton veterans would be unable to get to appointments that help them remain independent. Alternative transportation arrangements, especially to medical appointments in Madison, are expensive from Stoughton. In addition to providing a valuable service to veterans, this program provides Stoughton area volunteers with an opportunity for meaningful service, helping them to remain healthier through being active, contributing members to their community.
RSVP Vets Helping Vets provides rides to veterans and their spouses who need transportation to medical and other important appointments. Volunteers use their own cars and are reimbursed 51 cents/mile. There is no charge for the ride, but donations are accepted. Rides for younger vets are coordinated by the RSVP Vets Helping Vets Coordinator. Rides for older vets (age 60 and older) are coordinated by Dick Hoffman, our volunteer ride coordinator at the Stoughton Senior Center. Each year RSVP volunteer drivers drive 9,000-15,000 miles, providing 230-370 rides to 30-40 Stoughton veteran passengers and approximately 700 rides to all Stoughton passengers. A Recipient Satisfaction Survey is given to each rider to measure service satisfaction, etc. We regularly receive positive reviews. As a veteran spouse passenger said recently, “the very best service around anywhere!”
